Question Need Help! 2010 Camaro SS RS

Hi guys, this is my first post here. I have a 2010 SS RS Red Jewel Tincoat. I got it used and its been great.
So far I have upgraded to HIDS, LED DTR, tinted windows, and changed my interior lighting to aqua blue.
I was wondering where to start with performance upgrades. I don't have a lot of spare cash, but I want to do something. Horsepower is the main goal, keeping total cost in mind.
Any ideas?

what i did first when i got the car was a cold air inductions intake.. ran me 400$.. then i got a tune from jeanetty.. for 500$ i think. it was 900$ that woke up this car..

then after that its up to you really.. i went with headers, full exhaust. and havent messed with the motor till then

goodluck bud..

Are you planning on staying n/a? I prefer remaining n/a personally. Here are some of my notes on popular power adders for n/a application and RWHP gained min/max. I'm sure some have seen less or greater gains, but I think the majority fall within these parameters. I haven't considered meth kits or FI, but that is where the real power is ultimately.

CAI/ROTOFAB/ADM AIR INTAKE = 8-15RWHP
LT HEADERS = 15-35RWHP
REMOVE CATS, RESONATOR & MUFFLERS = 5-15RWHP
CAM = 40-80RWHP
PORTED HEADS = 10-30RWHP
UDP = 4-8RWHP
DYNO TUNE = 8-20RWHP
GEARS = NOT A POWER ADDER, BUT ADDS TORQUE THROUGH TORQUE MULTIPLICATION

My best guess would be anywhere from 35-60RWHP, 35 being very conservative.

Being it's 2010 your warranty is most likley gone. So have at it the Pocket books the limit headers, tune, exhaust, gears, supercharger, nitro.

Do you just have HIDs or did you convert to RS headlights or something along those lines?

Hi, thank you! Does it matter what tune I get and will that void my warranty?
How much gain did you get from the CAI and tune?

Thanks!

Naturally aspirated ... as in no forced induction like turbo/supercharger

Eventually maybe, but right now I don't have the funds for that.
